TEAM SWAN: SHOW RESPECT, WORK TOGETHER, ASPIRE AND NURTURE
Our school values were created around our SWAN logo and core values. TEAM SWAN also stands for our houses in school, which are named after local roads near our school: Sleaford, Warburton, Appletongate and Northgate.
Both the values and our SWAN logo and Wordle were designed as a collaboration with members of the school community and are a lovely legacy that has grown over time. Our values are very important to us and we like to link them into all we do. Recently we have started a new lunchtime 'Golden table' where pupils showing exceptional SWAN values at lunchtime can be awarded a 'golden ticket' from dinner staff and then if they are selected in a prize draw in Monday assembly, can choose to take a friend to dinner at the top 'golden table'. Pupils can also earn pupil reward tokens throughout the day or stickers for the door on their classroom for whole class SWAN value behaviours. These tokens are counted each term and the house with the most at the end of the year will earn a treat. We like to reward and incentivise in all we do and take a pride in ourselves when we enact the values too.
The central vision for our school continues to a place: “Where every child shows respect, works together, aspires and is nurtured, safe and can achieve their potential with confidence and pride”.
